Almond Crackers

Almond-Crackers-1

Over the weekend, my friend Marilyn mentioned that the only thing she missed about “eating clean” was having a cracker with soup.  That intrigued me.  I was sure I could find a recipe somewhere for crackers that are grain-free, sugar-free  and dairy-free with no artificial ingredients.  Well, there were a few but only this one appealed to me.  As usual, I made some changes, but the basics are the same and the crackers are great. Herewith, I give you Almond Crackers!

The basic recipe comes from a site called Elana’s Pantry.  The simple changes I made just enhance them with specific flavors, such as Rosemary, Italian, Everything, Sesame, etc. The good thing is that these Almond Crackers are pretty sturdy, yet have a nice crispness, too, when rolled out thin.  If you roll it out thicker, it has a short bread texture.  Have it your way! Try these Almond Crackers with Smoky Chicken Chili Soup.
